Safetran EM gates with 12"x24" Safetran L.E.D. lights protect this crossing. There's one Safetran bell on the smaller signal in pictures 1 and 2. When activated, the bell goes from activation to shutdown.

Looking South, then north.

 

I have some bad news on this crossing. When the Six Mile overpass is finished, this crossing will be closed. When trains come into the Oak Creek Power Plant, they have to wait to enter. While they wait, they park across this crossing, and create some LONG waits while the signals are activated for long periods of time!

 

If you've looked at the Six Mile Road crossing yet, you'll see by reading the above text that this crossing is gone too. I found out through the fuzzyworld3.com website that this crossing has been turned into dead end street.
